Still can't wait to get the post in. I might get up there tomorrow to at least get the studs in place and glued in.

I'm hoping I don't have to remove any caps to install the studs. The first ledge I did, I had the post before we started and I was able to sink the studs in the concrete and through the cap.

This time around, the post were on back-order and the temps were still good to do the concrete work so we just proceeded to get the job done and wait for the posts.

This is the first one we did, so it will look almost exactly the same.

The one I'm working on now is the last name of the original owner of the property. Augstin(Spanish version of augustine) was imprinted in the concrete of that ledge.

The name in the previously done ledge is the current homeowners.

Here is a pic from a local postcard company that took a pic of the property in 1903.

wow, if you look closely, you can still see the faded horse on the barn. Registered Percherons, pretty cool.

When they painted the barn red, they made sure not to paint over the horse. The lettering for the "White Oak Stock Farm" is still partially there also.

If you look closely at the driveway in the old pic, you can see the two concrete pillars or hitching post that we just took out.

The biggest travesty of the place is the original Victorian style of the house is gone. The current owners, when they acquired the house, had to deal with asbestos siding, so somewhere along the line they ripped off or covered up the old wood siding.
